This wooden stool tells a little style story and secondly a little secret of craftsmanship.
A typical Berlin room always entails a lot of ox blood red paint on the floor as the late 19th century passed them on. The changes of the 1990’s brought lightness! Many floors were then painted again in white or grey.
Now’s where the secret comes in: How can the the level former floor surface wrap around the second side of the same piece. The answer is easy and at the same time meticulous. Our artist cleanly cut a 45 degree angle and neatly glue up another “45-ed” piece to it. The result is a wonderfully tapered leg. As a result, this stool plays with surface structure and color and only on closer inspection. With the use of dowels and the very same floorboards is the playful approach perfected. The color exception comes as a second floor from the same flat was used to create the seat from a rather idiosyncratic “green phase” of the same inhabitant.
